March 11, 2012 Road Atlanta Miata Crash - NASA HPDE 2 group
This 2003 Miata Shinsen Edition was a brand new build by OPM Autosports in
Cumming, GA. They installed cage, seat, Schroth 6 point harness, SPA AFFF 6
nozzle fire suppression system, radiator, brake lines, tow hooks and much
more. They also oversaw the painting of the interior and hard top. Their
workmanship is beyond reproach. It really was the coolest looking track
Miata I had ever seen -- which makes this story so sad (OPM also did ride
height, corner weights and alignment for Spec Miata class and provided
track side support for this NASA SE event). I was in HPDE 2 group (one step
I waited three months for the build to complete. I promised myself I would
not wreck on the very first weekend I had the car back but ... I did. I hit
the inside wall after T3 pretty hard. Personally, I think I went to full
throttle too soon at T3. If I had just waited a few tenths longer until the
right rear tire had cleared the curbing before mashing the throttle, I
think I would have been ok. It's a painful lesson.
Here are pics of car after repairs - better than new!!

A freak accident in the BMW E46 M3 I was driving. Sorry for the swearing.
The failure wasn't the wheel (that's what it felt like), it was actually

fault. The car is already repaired!
Road Atlanta Corvette Z06 chasing MTI Z06
This was taken at Road Atlanta running with NASA on March 16, 2008. I am
driving a relatively stock C5 Z06 Corvette trying to keep up with a highly
modified MTI Corvette Z06. I was able to keep up in the corners, but it had
a lot of power to pull away on the straights. I am on Nitto 555R2 tires
that are now due for replacement. The owner of the MTI Z06 is a very nice
guy and has a very cool car. It was a lot of fun trying to keep up.
